Abstract: In daily life Air-conditioning plays an essential role in ensuring human thermal comfort. The commercially used cooling systems are intensively power consuming. So that it is necessary to save the energy in air conditioning. Among all of them the evaporative cooling techniques is well known which gives better result in saving energy and it is environmental friendly techniques. Evaporative cooling uses the fact that the water will absorb a relatively large amount of heat in order to evapor ate. The temperature of dry air will dropped because of phase change water into water vapors. Evaporative cooling requires abundant water and it works best when relative humidity is low. Evaporative cooling will be done using three methods direct evaporativ e cooling, Indirect Evaporative cooling, combined direct-indirect evaporative cooling. The main aim of this paper is to make comfort condition in terms of Temperature and Humidity and to minimize the water consumption. In this paper at a place of dry grass or cooling pads we are using hollow bamboo as fluid conduit. In hollow bamboo water continuously flows without any restriction. Some slits or holes are provided on the bamboo to enable the water and air contact and ease the evaporative action after CFD flow simulation. After providing such geometry of contact the evaporation comes to optimism and the water consumption as well as humidity is reduced, the continuous flow of water inside hollow bamboo reduce the contact time of water with air. Due to this effect the humidity of air is comparatively less than direct contact evaporative cooler, also reduces the water consumption. This type of evaporative cooler is designed to facilitate efficient evaporation of the water and circulation of cooled air.
